I will say these are the most comfortable work boots I've ever worn. That is all that is good about them. I have Keen sandals and hiking boots, but i will never buy their work boots again. I am an electrical foreman, so I am not very hard on work boots. However, after only 4 months these things started tearing in several different locations which comprised their water resistance. Now, thanks to several weeks of rain, they smell so bad I am embarrassed to wear them around people in enclosed spaces. Typically, when I spend $200 on a pair of boots, they last 2 years or better. These wont last me 6 months. Not only will I not recommend them, but I advise the guys on my job to avoid them entirely.
